A couple of weeks ago, we asked our readers to share some of their favourite "tips" and we would love to pass on some of them to you today!
Instead of letting my scraps pile up, I trim what I can to 4x6 for mini books, 2x3 for my quote book, and 4x5 for card fronts. That way, when I'm ready to create on a whim, I can just shop my stash without having to think. Plus, it makes me use my scraps! ~ Monica Wright
When I prepare for a crop, I match my pictures to my paper and throw it all in a huge 2 gallon zip lock bag. If I am really ambitious I add an idea I have found, and all the embellishments I might use, and even punches, etc. This way I am not dragging the whole house with. They are my kits. ~ Lori Anderson
I pick out lots of different pictures that move me at that moment and stick them in a file. another time, I'll go through and write down the journaling. Another time I'll go through and pick out papers & embellishments. Finally, I'll sit down and just make the page. ~ Jet H.
I find my journaling on scrapbook pages is always better if I record thoughts shortly after the event, either in a journal, in an on-line file or in a notebook. If I wait, I forget little things or the emotional reaction isn't as strong. ~ Brenda B.
I use a wine cork for my xacto blade. Keeps me protected. Thanks! ~ Pam
